Hiring is difficult. Finding the right people, training them and having them stay for the long haul is not easy. Justin from @barrelmakerprinting talks about how he hires.
Justin dives into hiring on the back-office and front-office to balance on the workload.
He generally posts on Craiglist to find talent but actually looks for people who don't have printing experience. This is because they can be trained and molded into the workflow at Barrel Maker instead of bringing bad habits from the past.
Justin hires for personality and attitude. A person who's willing to work hard and put in the time, he feels, is better than someone with past printing experience.
Temp agencies are another hot topic that Justin has used to help scale his shop up and down depending on workload.
